Chisels on a wheel is pretty much a woodworking manuel. It’s written very well and has a lot of illustrations. We usually sell this book on our website, along with some others, but we have this one posted for any one to read for free. A lot of good information, and its free. You can still buy the book if you want, but it’s there for anyone who wants to read it. Chisels on a wheel

-- Thanks- Emily, Washington,

Indeed. We take violations of my grandfather’s intellectual property very seriously, as there have been a number of illegal reprints, scans, etc. of his work. I am working on getting the book reprinted and do not appreciate illegal activity such as this.
